And now, the moment you have all been waiting for: Edward meets his mommy!! Awww; plus, he'll have is Bella with him! awww
Okay, lol. Here it is:
I couldn't believe he had talked me into this. I couldn't believe he still didn't know. I couldn't believe Charlie had let me go.
I sighed and leaned my head against the back of the seat. It had a long couple of days, what with Edward deciding to kill himself and all, but, now that I knew he really did love me, I could breathe easily. It was like the whole in my chest had been sewn back together.
I was still amazed. He really did love me as I loved him.
I chuckled and Alice looked over at me, eyebrows raised. I shook my head.
"I was just thinking about all the power you have over Charlie. You basically control my curfew." Of course Charlie had given me a really early curfew and taken away most of my basic rights as an American, but he didn't mind bending the rules when it came to Alice.
She frowned, and Edward laughed freely from the back seat where he had been recently hiding. Now that Charlie could no longer see into the car, he sat up freely, not seeming bothered in the least that he had to hide from a human one hundred times weaker than him, in his own car. I shook my head again.
"Will somebody please tell what's going on? I can't stand it." Edward implored. I grinned. Alice sure was good at hiding things.
We all knew he would be excited to see his mom after all these years, but every one of the Cullens had argued that he had to get things settled with me first. I hadn't minded too much, of course, but I didn't want to deprive Edward of any potential time with his biological mother.
"Nope," Alice brought me back to reality. I had been reminiscing about the night before. Edward had held me and sang to me until I fell asleep again. it had been wonderful, just like old times. and for the first time, I hadn't even had a nightmare. I had slept so peacefully, I had forgotten what it had felt like. "A surprise is a surprise, so that means no. back me up here Bella." Alice turned to me for help, and I was, once again, pulled from my thoughts.
I sighed. "For the last time, Edward, you don't get to know what's going on. This is for all the times you insisted on surprising me. Not so fun, now is it Cullen?" I teased him. and then I thought of something. "Except, this you'll love, so it's not really pay back. Oh well. I'll think of something."
I turned around and smiled at him to let him know I was joking. He wrinkled his nose but smiled nonetheless. I laughed and that only broadened his already wide smile. It hurt to look at.
Edward looked around, looking confused. I understood how he felt. How many had Alice made me think he had some huge surprise, and then ended up just taking me to her house? Except, then, it almost guaranteed that a makeover would soon follow, and Alice wasn't planning on playing Guinea Pig Barbie with my boyfriend. I giggled.
He looked at me, eyebrows. How alike he and his sister were! I just grinned and faced the front again.
He let out an exasperated sigh as Alice made the last turn into the three-mile-long driveway of the Cullen home. I knew he hated it when I kept my thoughts from him, but there was no way he was calling me on this one. He would find out soon enough. He just had to be patient.
As we got closer to the house, his eyebrows furrowed. The rest of the family was keeping their thoughts from him. And then his head whipped up and I could see the look of shock on his face. It mingled with confusion.
I smiled gently. "Welcome home, Edward." I said, just as the car came to a stop.
He was out of car and pulling open my door before I could blink. And then I was in his arms and he was kissing me. My head spun as I fought for breath, but he soon released me. I almost fell to the ground but Edward caught me in time. He leaned down to whisper in my ear.
"That sounds so perfect coming from you. I am truly home now." I smiled. He had no idea.
I grabbed his hand and pulled him towards the door. It was a good thing he decided to play along; otherwise I would not have been moving.
Alice came bounding up the steps, smiling broadly. I mirrored her, stepping in front of the door s that when Carlisle opened the door I could swoop in dramatically and be the first to introduce mother and son. We had basically practiced it, though it was all Alice's idea. Carlisle had thought it would be best coming from me.
Edward put his hands on his hips, glaring at us playfully. I couldn't help the giggle that slipped through my teeth. And then Edward deviated from the plan (though, in all fairness, he didn't know about it) and scooped me up and out of the way. He opened the door with his other hand, now cradling me in one arm. I have to say, I wasn't all that upset about it. I was still a little breathless.
Alice, on the other hand, pouted with all her might, until I shot her a look. She understood what I meant: this was Edward's day. It would go the way he wanted it to go, from now on. Our only job was to get him where he needed to be.
Edward took the first step inside and froze when he saw their guest. I gently climbed out of his arms and onto the safety of the ground.
Edward's eyes were huge and round, and his mouth was hanging open. He still hadn't moved. Emmett chuckled. Esme glared at him.
Finally, as nothing happened, Carlisle stepped in. "Son, we have a guest. She has a very fascinating story, if you would like to hear it."
Edward glanced down at me, still standing at his side. "you knew?" I nodded slowly, hoping I hadn't hurt his feelings by not telling him.
"We all wanted it to be a surprise. She came here before any of you had gotten back. She said she was looking for Carlisle, but I knew who she was. And then Alice showed, and then you went to Volterra, and everything went haywire. We wanted you to know, but we didn't want to overwhelm you."
If he could have cried, I think he would have.
Edward looked at his real mother with new eyes. "How . . .?"
Carlisle chuckled. We all looked at him. he gestured towards the couches, saying, "Why don't we all sit down. Elizabeth has a fascinating story for us all."
Of course, we all knew the story, save for Edward, but we all sat down. This was Edward's day.
Edward pulled me onto his lap and wrapped his arms around my waist as Elizabeth Masen began to retell her story to the one person she had been looking for for over ninety years.
This was a very aawww chapter. Tell me what you think! Didn't it seem like such a good place to end? Should I keep going?
P.S. – I will start writing outtakes as soon as I am sure this story is complete. Tell me if there is anything you would like to see, i.e: chapter from a dif POV, missing moment, etc.
Give me ideas so I know what to write about. I will definitely do this last chapter from Edward's POV, and the first chapter with all of the Cullen's from jus Bella' POV. Is there anything else you would like to see???
